Remember these sweet little out-buildings that I saw at Coggeshall Farm?
I took my friend there so she could get photos of them and when we got there our view was blocked. Hold on, I'm coming to that! But meanwhile we were told what they used to be. This top one was the cheese house. This was an old working farm, remember?
And this one is right next to it, this is the well. The young man let us open the door to show us. It just looked like a house full of water! The reason the cheese house was close to it is because there was no electricity in those days, hence it was hard to keep the dairy products safe from bacteria, so they washed the walls, shelves and floors constantly. It was just handy and neccesary to have the well close by.
But these guys were blocking our photo shots!
This is Constance and one of her keepers. I forget what kind of cow she is, but I do remember he said she's 10 months old.
She was completely ignoring us to munch on these fresh greens.
Between the mud from recent rain and her cow pies, well, it was hard to step around there!
"Constance" is going back to the pasture to be with her sister "Goodness" and the horses and burro. You wouldn't believe the decibal of the MOOOOOOOO that came out of her! She wanted to stay right where she was.
I have to admit, that place is so peaceful and restorative.
We can all use a dose of that!
